Elk Grove – National Night Out
Go easy on the cocktails…but do come together and meet your neighbors during the nationwide event going on all over the country and right here in Elk Grove tomorrow!
National Night Out is designed to help residents become acquainted with your neighbors and meet your local law enforcement officers that are working tirelessly to keep your streets safe.
When: Tuesday, August 4, 2015 (all day and into the evening)
Where: Your Elk Grove neighborhood, cul-de-sac or street
Why: Because coming together to get to know your neighbors and officers of the Elk Grove Police Department is a good way to prevent and fight crime.
Neighborhoods throughout Elk Grove along with Elk Grove Police Department will be enjoying block parties with awesome barbecues, snow cones and fun bounce houses in an all out effort to build neighborhood friendships, camaraderie and mutual crime prevention measures for the safety of their community.
The goal of Elk Grove – National Night Out is to promote police and community partnerships. Meeting and getting to know your neighbors may be beneficial in recognizing the norms for your neighborhood. For example, if you know your neighbor is at work all day and you notice unusual activity on or around their property you are more likely to be mindful if you have met that particular neighbor. By getting to know your neighbors personally you can build lasting friendships and look out for each other. Local law enforcement will be on hand to raise awareness to issues and concerns that may be happening in your neighborhood. For example, if there has been a rash of vehicle break in’s in your neighborhood, you can discuss preventive measures that have been working to improve the safety in your neighborhood.
